Politicians kept on talking but
We kept shipping out more.
You'd think we had suffered
More than enough pain,
And we had learned a lesson
That there was nothing to gain.
The body bags kept coming,
The tears kept on flowing,
The man in the White House
Smiled without "knowing."
He had his chance a long time ago
But "daddy" pulled some strings and
George W. did not have to go.
Night after night we kept on crying,
Lives kept on being wasted and
The White House kept on lying.
The story kept on playing,
The tragic carnage was still there,
Who would stand up to be counted,
And show that we cared?
